Eerie

This is my response to the Weekly Photo Challange: Eerie. It’s taken at Tamarama, Sydney and is part of Sculpture by the Sea. The park I like to walk the dog is taken over by sculptures and it certainly makes for an interesting dog walk. If find the people are almost as interesting as the sculptures.

Sculpture by the Sea

Sculpture by the Sea is one of the world’s largest free to the public events. The spectacular Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk is transformed into a 2km long temporary sculpture park featuring over 100 sculptures by artists from Australia and across the world. This year is Sculptures 16th year and as a Bondi local I have watched this event grow and develop from a few small sculptures dotted on Bondi Beach to an event attracting thousands of visitors each year. It is a 3 week event and takes place in Oct-Nov each year.  Which is your favourite?

This is a kinetic sculpture that is a tribute to the 220 victims of the Bali bombing. When the wind blows the bamboo makes an amazing sound. A beautiful memorial looking at Ben Buckler headland, Bondi, Sydney
